Through Women’s Eyes: An American History was the first textbook in U.S. women’s history to bring together an inclusive narrative within the context of the central developments of U.S. history and to integrate written and visual primary sources into each chapter. The result, according to authors Ellen Carol DuBois and Lynn Dumenil, was to "reveal the relationship between secondary and original sources, to show history as a dynamic process of investigation and interpretation rather than a set body of facts and figures."

The enormous success of the first edition proves that the field of U.S. women’s history was ready for a genre-busting textbook that focuses on women from a broad range of ethnicities, classes, religions and regions and that helps students understand how women and women’s history are an integral part of U.S. history.
